TNA Makes Offer To Former ROH Star, Why WWE Backed Off

MLW Radio reported earlier today that former ROH star and one-time WWE prospect Moose had signed with TNA. They later posted an update, seen below, noting that TNA has made an offer but Moose hasn’t made a decision yet.

It’s no secret that Moose has been on WWE’s radar and was expected to be at the WWE Performance Center this fall. The Wrestling Observer reports that WWE backed away from signing Moose due to a 2009 domestic incident with his now ex-wife, that led to a one-game suspension as he was playing in the NFL then. WWE reportedly told Moose that it was a timing issue, due to the recent incidents with Adam Rose and Jerry Lawler, not a closed door.
